Peter May/Boston Globe on Troy Hudson:
Hudson is one of a handful of free agent point guards looking for work, and his agent, Bill Neff, targeted the Celtics as his No. 1 priority. His client has experience. His client will sign for the veteran minimum (having already received a lucrative buyout from Minnesota, where he clashed with Kevin McHale). His client is tight with new Celtic Kevin Garnett. His client played well for coach Doc Rivers in Orlando. His client says his days as a gunner are over and that he wants to lead a team.
What's not to like?
Well, Ainge doesn't want Hudson - or anyone else right now - as a point guard...
Neff says he's "mystified" as to why the Celtics won't at least bring in T-Hud for a workout.
Neff will now target the Cavaliers (who appear to need help at the position) after Hudson decided not to accept an offer to join San Antonio, where he would have been behind Tony Parker and Jacque Vaughn. But in the back of his mind, he still thinks Boston is the ideal landing spot.
Branson Wright/Cleveland Plain Dealer writes that Cleveland has "some interest in Troy Hudson but Hudson has interest in more teams than just the Cavs."
